Recommendations for CF card MK2
« on: March 25, 2012, 08:58:43 PM »
Recommendations for CF card shooting video. Sandisk only.

I originally planned on getting a MK3 and bought CF card and SD card for it. I bought a refurbished MK2 instead.

Will a 90MB/sec card be overkill for shooting video or should I get a 60MB/sec instead?

Thanks in advance.

The high speed card coupled with a high speed card reader lets you download that huge amount of data quickly.  I'm pretty happy with the 60 mb/sec Sandisk cards with my 5D MK II.  It will not write that fast at all.

Thank you for your reply :) I will be getting 60 mb/sec cards.

Stay away from that card, its only 4MB/sec.  No way will it work for video on the 5D MK III

Thanks in advance.

What about Delkin (for CF)?  Someone had recommended that to me...

Also, isn't there a 'class' system when it comes to SD/CF  cards to know the quality/speed? If so...how does that work?

Thanks in advance,

I'm using the 60mb/sec CF cards I used with my 5D MK II and my 7D.  They are only 16GB, and 64 GB would be better. 
 
I bought a 30mb/sec class 10 SDXC card earlier this week on a Amaxon.com special, so I will not have to change my backup card frequently.  Right now, I'm writing jpegs to the SDXC and raw to the CF, but that's just a test.  I could write a lot of jpegs to a 64GB card.
 
i'll try writing raw to both and see how much that slows it down.
